Newly remastered, this crime thriller centred on new police officer Andy Mitchell, his mentor, George Dixon, and young criminal hooligan, Dirk Bogarde, was immensely popular. The first film to look at the day-to-day activities of the police, it remains an interesting social document of the times.

Unpredictable, thrilling and decidedly memorable, definitely one of the best films of the year. An original and strange fairy tale for our times. Full of humour, intrigue, suspense and even horror, it centres on a female customs officer who can smell guilt.

Powerful and unsettling political satire; war film of the year? True story of a German deserter in the last days of the war who embarks on a brutal odyssey putting on the uniform of a SS officer. A chilling performance from Max Hubacher as the Captain.
